Does clindamycin phosphate topical solution interact with drugs or food?

You should be able to keep eating what you normally eat, but clindamycin topical solution may interact with other topical medications. Although little is expected to be absorbed into the bloodstream, it may be absorbed enough to cause interactions with medications taken by mouth or injection. If you are suffering from diarrhea as a side effect of using clindamycin topical solution, do not treat it before speaking with your doctor; some medications might make it worse. Other skin medications and products, such as erythromycin and over-the-counter medicated soaps, may also cause you to have increased skin irritation. Discuss your skin regimen with your dermatologist before using clindamycin topical solution with other products.
